Windows ntfs hard drives are successfully mounted, it is showing the contents in terminal also, but i am unavble to open hdas directly from desktop, it says

"The folder contents could not be displayed."
"You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of "hda1".

Are you trying to open the device file or the place it's mounted to?

On the terminal are you worikng there as root and on your desktop maybe as user?

If thats so you could try adding umask=000 to your fstab entries about the htfs partitions.

can't see the contents of hdas

iam able to see the contents in terminal both in root as well as normal user account.

i tried to set permissions using

/dev/hda1 /media/windows ntfs nls=utf8,umask=0222 0 0

but it didn't worked. fstab entries are:

# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda3 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/hda1 /media/hda1 ntfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hda5 /media/hda5 ntfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hda6 /media/hda6 ntfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hda4 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hdb /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0

Hmm what windows manager do you use?
On kde you can add a link to a device by right clicking - add - devices. Then it should work.
The other option would be to create a link to /media/hdax - not the device!
